Is it possible to bring back my Avocado plant after over watering

I started my plant from a pit and had it for 6 years live in Vegas and I had no idea my son watered it one night then the next morning cause the top soil was dry I watered it. All the leaves curled and dried up and in order to try to save it I took the plant out of its pot and rid of that overwet soil I repotted the plant and cut all the branches back is it possible for it to come back

    There are two basic steps to saving a potted plant: treating the roots and repotting it. First, gently remove the plant from its pot and examine the roots. Use clean, sharp clippers to remove any unhealthy roots. These will appear brown and mushy and may have an unpleasant scent. Second, discard the old potting soil, and either discard the pot or soak it in a solution of 1 part bleach to 9 parts water for at least 30 minutes. Rinse and dry it thoroughly before repotting the plant in fresh soil that contains 1 percent hydrogen peroxide. This will help to oxygenate the plant.

    Yes it is, but you need to give it some peace and quiet. It has been flooded, uprooted, and injured. Give it a year. ☺️

    Don't know I broke away most of the compacted soil never saw the pit so I can not answer that part but I repotted in drier soil

      Were you able to save the tree? I have the same issue with my overwatered young outdoors avocado tree.
